The front and sides are gorgeous...  Hopefully it will help bring new awareness to the family and perhaps even add value to the marque...

Am I the only one that see Peter Brock's original Detomaso P70 Can Am sports racer in this new car? Looks to me to be a beautiful modern reinterpritation Of the Iconic P70. ... But what do I know?

Randy, you’re absolutely right. That’s why it’s called the P72. They even had the P70 there for comparison.

To Cartoonish for Me...reminds Me of the old Cartoon Speed Racer.

 

What's so bad about that??

I would change a few things but, I think car looks good.  I don't care for the vents behind the rear tires, I would tone down the wheels and interior of course. But the overall car is fantastic. Great vintage flow, floor shift, I dig the huge air scoops on the fenders.  For me, if this car was dark blue with black interior it would be perfect...

This car is going to be displayed at Concoso.

In previous announcements, we shared that we would be celebrating the 60th Anniversary of the De Tomaso automobiles. Now that they are revived by Ideal Team Ventures, and the new P72 has officially been unveiled, Concorso Italiano is thrilled to announce that the new De Tomaso company and the newly revealed P72 will be on display and available for viewing this August.

Designs are just that, designs by designer and tastes  vary, for sure.

That said, I'm with you John: FANTASTIC! The typical scuttle-butt that the new car was going to be a slightly modified GT5-S at 300 + K was to much for me. It is thrilling to see a real effort created from an old design that was way cool in it's day. I was lucky to hear the P-70 story direct. Congratulations to the new group.

Word is that the Pantera will follow, the P72 is more a brand re-imaging.

OK so is it going to be a re-make of the GT5-S with some slight mods then or a new design? A slightly modified composite S for big money???
